Pope Francis Offers New Creation Care Message

 

Three Steps To Fight Climate Change

This address was filmed at the Vatican and first shown at TED Countdown Global Launch, October 2020

Hello! We are living during a historic moment, marked by difficult challenges, as we all know. The world is shaken by the crisis caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, which highlights another global challenge: the socio-environmental crisis. 

 

And this requires us, all of us, to face a choice. The choice between what matters, and what doesn’t. The choice between continuing to ignore the suffering of the poorest and to abuse our common home, our planet, or engaging at every level to transform the way we act.

Fr. Eduardo Scarel, O.Carm., an internationally respected climatologist who worked with Pope Francis on his Laudato Si' Encyclical, completed a successful U.S. tour, speaking in multiple cities to diverse audiences.

In New Orleans, Fr. Eduardo gave a lecture at Notre Dame Seminary: "Environmental Justice Through the Lens of Laudato Sí': Caring for our Common Home."  

 

He also made stops in Buffalo, NY, Chicago, Tucson, AZ, and El Paso, TX. where he lectured in English and Spanish.

What Does Laudato Si' Mean?

 

"Praise be to you."

Pope Francis chose this title for his environmental Encyclical "Care For Our Common Home." Laudato Si' is also from the text of Canticle of the Sun, St. Francis of Assisi's 13th century poem of praise.

  "How can we help make their education a sign of greater responsibility in the face of today's

 problems?"

Pope Francis
